Texas Death Row Innocence

Hosted by

Cameron Todd Willingham was convicted of killing his three daughters in Texas in 1992. He was charged with setting a house fire that killed the girls. And he was executed for the crime in 2004. But a jailhouse informant who was instrumental in convicting Willingham has now recanted his testimony. And the fire science used to convict him has since been debunked.
